Andy and Katy and their Avington Park wedding

On saturday we joined Andy and Katy Ward for their beautiful wedding at Avington Park Nr Winchester on what turned out to be a much better than forcast day I am pleased to say!

We were recommended to Andy and Katy, as we are to a good many of our weddings, Katy and Andy are both medics and live in the beautiful town of Bath so we only met Katy briefly before the wedding day and that was by accident ūüôā ¬†Sue and I were doing a pre-wedding look around at the church and decided to pop into Katy’s Mums house to check out the parking as as we did Katy arrived so we got to say hello.

So we started the day with Katy doing a few detail shots before heading off to the local St Peters Catholic church to meet Andy and bestman Rich for a few photos and to look around the church again,  then when Katy arrived in a beautiful green Jaguar and we were led into a beautiful ceremony and out into the brief but very welcome sunshine.

We then headed upto Avington Park where we were met by the wedding manager John, we headed straight into our portraits whilst the guests arrived and had some fun by the river and bridge and then a few nice family groups and the guests chilling out on the lawns.

We then headed into dinner and speeches followed by the dancing.

Sue and I had a great time again and would like to thank John for his help and a big thanks to Richard for all your help along with the ushers and to Both sets of parents for looking after us and helping us feel like friends of the family.

Andy and Katy have an amazing honeymoon and see you soon

Colour or Black-White what’s your thoughts?

We are very lucky that at every shoot we do we both love most of our images and almost every week one of us will scream “OMG thats my fav ever image” ¬†hahaha we are so fickle!!! ¬†But every once in a while I come across a photograph that we just ¬†love but just cant decide how to present it, we had this problem with a beautiful photograph (my fav photograph ever hahaha) from Alex and Jodie’s recent Gaynes Park wedding.

I was sat on the bed in the cottage waiting for Jodie to finished getting ready when I watched her approach the mirror and adjust her hair, I sprang into life and this amazing photograph (yes I know I am big headed) ūüôā ¬†is the result.

I adore it in colour but what do you think ?  please comment below if your interested

workshop with a twist.

I dont normally post much about our workshops here but this was a great story as posted on our workshop website!,  I hope you enjoy it.

A couple of years ago I started talking to a lady on Facebook, Cathie Gardner Adams and it soon became clear that Cathie loved her photography just like me, well soon after chatting I was helping Cathie hone her skills with her Nikon D300 and we because friends,  Cathie lives in Redondo Beach, which is one of the three Beach Cities in Los Angeles County, California, United States so apart from a few conversations online I never really expected to help Cathie any further,  That was until Cathie decided to book one of our workshops to kick off her vacation here in the UK,    Cathie flew into London on Thursday night and came to stay with us in on of our B&B rooms, we had a few cocktails and a lot of laughs and then Friday morning we all headed off to our workshop studiosfor the real fun to begin.

Cathie had chosen one of our¬†“getting to know your camera” workshops which as always starts with the camera settings and a few tips and tricks, after a couple of hours we headed off for¬†Marwell zoo and it was such an amazing day, the sun shone and all but the snow leopards came out to play so Cathie got some amazing shots that made her very happy and me a very proud.

We then headed back to the studio to go over our trip, download our photos and of course edit them, we had such a great time and Cathie took some amazing photos which I am sure you will agree.

Cathie’s photography has gone from the ordinary (she wont mind me saying that I promise) to the extraordinary, each and every photo has that WOW factor and I am pleased and proud to have a big part in that transformation.

This morning after 2 nights we dropped Cathie off at the train station to head off to Bristol, then Bath, Glastonbury, and Edinburgh and we wish her a safe and enjoyable trip, cant wait to see some photos!

Here are a few that Cathie took yesterday at Marwell during our workshop,  you too could be shooting like this if you call and book a course!

These were all shot through either cages, wire or very thick glass, all of which we cover on our courses.
